Artec 3D Launches Artec Studio 18 for Metrology
Each new version of the software has capabilities of Artec 3D scanners and the data quality they can capture.
September 19, 2023
Artec 3D, manufacturer and developer of professional 3D scanners and software, has released Artec Studio 18 (AS18).
Each new version of the software has capabilities of Artec 3D scanners and the data quality they can capture. Artec Studio 18 now also debuts features that allow users to merge multi-resolution datasets from different Artec 3D scanners, process scan data faster and create lifelike color 3D models with artificial intelligence.
Artec Studio 18's new tools help advance users’ 3D scanning workflows. When reverse engineering, it’s now easier to stamp out deviations and modify parts to reflect design intent. New algorithms also accelerate quality inspection, enabling instant defect identification, and ensuring models meet industry tolerances.
All subscribers can access the new version, with a free 30-day trial open to those who want to try out new features.
Multi-resolution Scan Merging
Combine different resolution 3D scan data captured with any Artec device using Artec Studio Smart Fusion. Digitizing large areas or objects with Artec Ray II and picking up fine details using Artec Leo, before simultaneously registering data, now offers a fast way of getting full scan coverage. After fusion, Single-step Mesh Optimization then streamlines editing.
Smart Fusion allows for multi-resolution scans, where Artec handheld captured areas are higher resolution than those digitized using the long-range Ray II.
Featuring faster Global Registration, the latest version of the software allows scans—whether captured with one device or multiple—to be rapidly processed in a single click, the company says. Artec Leo and Eva users also benefit from a streamlined, AI-powered faster HD Mode.
Artec Studio 18 features AI-boosted Texture Enhancement. Built around neural network decoding, this new feature yields reportedly sharper models with enhanced color contrast. It also allows those who upgrade to help improve their overall texture resolution and quality.
Enhanced Deviation, Design
Identify inaccuracies more quickly when completing Quality Assurance tasks with Artec Studio’s Enhanced 3D Compare Map, which can target maximum Mesh-CAD deviations. New to Artec Studio 18, Thickness Mapping and Tolerance Check Mode also help users ensure models meet industry standards.
